Eli Drinkwitz provides update on injured Mizzou star WR Dominic Lovett
Eli Drinkwitz and the Missouri Tigers are preparing for a Week 6 road trip to Florida.
The offense will need to be at its best to take down the Gators, and that means a healthy Dominic Lovett will be important. But, Lovett suffered a lower leg injury against Georgia in Week 5.
On Tuesday, Drinkwitz updated the status of Mizzou’s leading receiver, saying Lovett is 50-50 at this point as to whether he’ll be able to play at Florida or not:
Drinkwitz: WR Dominic Lovett is day to day with a lower leg injury. They'll see how he looks at practice today. Puts him at 50-50 for Saturday at Florida.

So far this season, Lovett has 27 catches for 460 yards and 2 touchdowns — all team highs.
Will he be able to go on Saturday? We’ll find out if he takes the field in The Swamp at noon Eastern time on ESPN.
